Man United closely monitoring €40m-rated Serie A defender

Man United keen on signing Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli and set to battle with Chelsea for the footballer. Red Devils need a new top-class centre-back to improve the back-line and Italy international is the perfect choice in this situation. He started this campaign amazingly and proved his greatness one more time.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær will do everything to add him during the winter transfer window. Blues also interested to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more. Romagnoli joined the Italian club from Roma in 2015 with a £25m deal. He is one of the best defenders in Serie A and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, Alessio already played 17 matches and scored 2 goals in all competition. This is an impressive result and he can do much more with high-class teammates.

The 23-year-old centre-back is contracted with the Rossoneri until 2022 and his release clause is around £40m. He is a regular member of the national team which is already a big achievement for the footballer. Red Devils ready to pay big money for the player in January when the transfer window opens again.
